9781464800887: Avaliação de Impacto na Prática (Portuguese Edition)

“ O objetivo deste livro é fornecer um guia acessível, abrangente e claro para a avaliação de impacto.
Omaterial, desde a motivação da avaliação de impacto até as vantagens de diferentes metodologias,
cálculos de poder estatístico e de custos, é explicado de forma muito clara e a cobertura é
impressionante. Este livro se tornará um guia muito consultado e utilizado e afetará a formulação
depolíticas para os próximos anos.”
Orazio Attanasio, Professor de Economia, University College London; Diretor, Centro de
Avaliação de Políticas de Desenvolvimento, Instituto de Estudos Fiscais, Reino Unido

“ Este é um recurso valioso para quem procura realizar avaliações de impacto no mundo em
desenvolvimento, abrangendo os aspectos conceituais e práticos envolvidos, ilustrados com
exemplos de prática recente.”
Michael Kremer, Professor de Sociedades em Desenvolvimento, Departamento de Economia,
Universidade de Harvard, Estados Unidos

“ Os ingredientes principais para boas avaliações públicas são (a) metodologias apropriadas; (b) a
capacidade de resolver problemas práticos, tais como coletar de dados, trabalhar com orçamentos
baixos, e escrever relatório fi nal; e (c) governos responsáveis. Este livro não apenas descreve
metodologias técnicas sólidas para medir o impacto de programas públicos, mas também fornece
vários exemplos e nos leva ao mundo real da implementação de avaliações, desde o convencimento
dos formuladores de políticas até a divulgação dos resultados. Se mais profi ssionais e formuladores
de políticas lessem este manual, teríamos melhores políticas e resultados em muitos países. Se os
governos melhorarem a prestação de contas, o impacto deste manual será ainda maior.”
Gonzalo Hernández Licona, Secretário Executivo, Conselho Nacional de Avaliação de Políticas de
Desenvolvimento Social (CONEVAL), México

“ Eu recomendo este livro como um guia claro e acessível para as questões desafi adoras, práticas e
técnicas, enfrentadas na elaboração de avaliações de impacto. Ele se baseia em material que tem
sidotestado em workshops em todo o mundo e deve se mostrar igualmente útil aos profi ssionais,
formuladores de políticas e avaliadores.”
Nick York, Chefe do Departamento de Avaliação, Departamento para o Desenvolvimento
Internacional, Reino Unido

“ O conhecimento é um dos bens mais valiosos para compreender a natureza complexa do processo
de desenvolvimento. A avaliação de impacto pode contribuir para preencher a lacuna entre intuição
e evidências, para melhor informar a formulação de políticas. Este livro, um dos resultados tangíveis
do Fundo Estratégico de Avaliação de Impacto, equipa os profi ssionais de desenvolvimento humano
com ferramentas de ponta para produzir evidências sobre quais políticas funcionam e por quê. Visto
que ele aumenta a nossa capacidade de alcançar resultados, esperamos que faça uma grande
diferença na prática do desenvolvimento.”
Soraya Rodríguez Ramos, Secretária de Estado para a Cooperação Internacional, Espanha

Book Description World Bank Publications, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English,Portuguese . Brand New Book. This book offers an accessible introduction to the topic of impact evaluation and its practise in development. While the book is geared principally towards development practitioners and policymakers designing prospective impact evaluations, we trust that it will be a valuable resource for students and others interested in using impact evaluation. Prospective impact evaluations should be used selectively to assess whether or not a programme has achieved its intended results, or to test alternatives for achieving those results. We consider that more and better impact evaluation will help strengthen the evidence base for development policies and programmes around the world. If governments and development practitioners can make policy decisions based on evidence - including evidence generated through impact evaluation - our hope is that development resources will be spent more effectively, and ultimately have a greater impact on reducing poverty and improving people s lives. The three chapters in this handbook provide a non-technical introduction to impact evaluations, including Why Evaluate in Chapter 1, How to Evaluate in Chapter 2 and How to Implement Impact Evaluations in Chapter 3. These elements are the basic tools needed in order to successfully carry out an impact evaluation. From a methodological standpoint our approach to impact evaluation is largely pragmatic: we think that the most appropriate methods should be identified to fit the operational context and not the other way around. This is best achieved at the outset of the programme, through the design of prospective impact evaluation that can be built into the project s implementation. We argue that gaining consensus between key stakeholders and identifying an evaluation design that fits the political and operational context is as important as the method itself. We also believe strongly that impact evaluations should be upfront about their limitations and caveats. Finally, we strongly encourage policymakers and programme managers to consider impact evaluations in a logical framework that clearly sets out the causal pathways by which the programme works to produce outputs and influence final outcomes, and to combine impact evaluations with monitoring and selected complementary evaluation approach to gain a full picture of performance. This book builds on a core set of teaching materials developed for the Turning Promises to Evidence workshops organised by the office of the Chief Economist for Human Development (HDNCE) in partnership with regional units and the Development Economics Research Group (DECRG) at the World Bank.
